A Novel Tale of a Novel Cover

Once upon a time, I went to study on how to repair flying machines.

During my dozens of years (not really, just 2 and a half years) of studying there were many instructors that taught me different aspects of flying machine repairs.

Some taught me metalwork, some taught me electrics, some taught me theory of flight.

One particular person taught me about turbine engines. He was a tall gentleman, he was.

Over the years after I returned home, I've always known from second hand accounts that he's now living in this country. In recent years, I've had the pleasure of meeting up with him again briefly.

Last month, he and his lovely wife came down all the way from Ulu Klang (which is about 10 klicks up the Middle Ring Road) asked me to produce a cover for a science fiction novel that he has written and is about to publish.

So I've used all my turbine engine skills and knowledge* to come up with this following cover:

A cover of a book...

This is only a draft. It might be used, or it might not. But one thing's for sure, I had a lot of fun conjuring up the painting.

Further details about the novel shall be written as entries unto this website when I get more information about it and its upcoming release.

*"...turbine engine skills and knowledge"? Not bloody likely.

This is brilliant! I do hope they use it – and make sure you get paid, you know what these bloody foreign authors are like (mean, miserly, tight-fisted….)

Fear not, fans of KH. This will be used because I say so!! The book is called ‘The Adepts Book 1 Furato’. It’s a Sci-Fi/fantasy whodunnit and should be (all being well, be out in August so look for KH’s artwork complete with turbine graphics. Book 2 (Empath) is also complete now and Book (Pitch Perfect) is well under way. Could be more work for our favourite brainiac.
